I Want To Know What Happens If Your House Hits 80MPH With This Wall Charger Plugged In

It might be hyperbole to say the Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Wall Charger is the only wall charger you will ever need, but we should all have goals in life, and only charging my phone with something that looks like it was ripped out of the backseat of a sweet old DeLorean seems like a really good aspiration to have.


The wall charger appears to just be a regular wall charger with a $10 keychain tacked on. Yet the device, available exclusively from ThinkGeek and currently on sale for $20, can charge two whole devices via USB! That’s two more devices than the keychain that came before it.

Sadly, the 4.75 to 5.25V wall charger doesn’t appear to be QuickCharge compatible and takes up two whole sockets. These are major bummers for such a pricey dang wall charger. But that is the kind of bargain you have to make with your nerd god when you own a charger that looks like a flux capacitor. The real joy won’t come from charging your devices, it will come from building a sweet pillow fort around the wall you have it plugged into, tossing on a jean jacket and some high tops, and pretending you’re Marty McFly.

Nothing will happen at 80, but when this baby hits 88 miles per hour, you’re gonna see some serious shit.
